This tag should show up only for source packages built with
dpkg-source older than version 1.14.17 (from March 2008).
It will probably not show up when you run Lintian locally but may be

This tags can be fixed by rebuilding the source package
with a more recent version of
dpkg-source, i.e. by making
a new upload.
The tag is present in Lintian version
That is the most recent version we know about.
We use semantic versions.
The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the
